The following information is about contributing articles. If you're looking to contribute a photo essay or other piece of media please see below.
At Global Photography School we believe that everyone has something to say, a story to tell, and that everyone can and should tell their stories. We do not and cannot compensate writers for their articles but we also take zero credit for your work. You retain copyright and the right to publish your work elsewhere. We welcome articles that have already been published so long as there are no issues with the previous publisher. We also welcome writers who've never been published.
Article of Interest
We're looking for article of interest to those who love photography, want to use photography to show the world things about their selves, culture, people, country, etc. We welcome how-to style articles that can help other photographers and those wishing to be photographers to improve their skills. We also welcome articles about experiences as photographers. Global Photography School is especially interested in stories from marginalized or displaced people. Often the stories of these groups is told by others and GPS would like to see that change. We wish to see displaced and marginalized people tell their stories as only they can. We are looking to add a platform in the interest of decolonizing photography and media in general.
We don not accept any articles about NFTs or how to create them. The only exception to this rule is if you wish to contribute an article advising people to avoid NFTs. At Global Photography School we believe that NFTs are simply a tool to legitimize crypto-currency while extracting wealth from artist, photographers, and others. The NFT market is fraught with issues as is the concept of crypto currency. Given those issues we are not accepting articles that paint NFTs in a positive light as we don't believe that they are positive.
Contributing Photo Essays
Global photography School is interested in photographers contributing photo essays. We're especially interested in photo essays that tell stories that are not being told or that are being told by outsiders (media from former colonial powers for example). If you are a member of a marginalized or displaced group and wish to tell either your personal story or share a photo essay about the group of people you belong to we are happy to be aa platform for your work. At GPS we believe that the most genuine stories we can tell come from ourselves or our closest community. If you're ready to tell us your story or the story of your community we can't wait to hear from you!
